    Actor John Challis cannot stand wind farms. Why? Well, for a start, there are plans to build one near his home in Knighton. He thinks it will be a blot on the landscape.

    John - best known for playing Boycie in Only Fools and Horses - also believes wind power is not the answer to our energy needs.

    In fact, John is so wound up by wind energy, he refuses to even go near a wind turbine.

    But can Inside Out change his mind?
